‘Little Mix: The Search? More like Little Boring,’ says Ryan-Mark Parsons

The Apprentice star Ryan-Mark Parsons didn't hold back in this week's edition of his exclusive Daily Star Online column.

The-businessman-turned-TV-personality has some tough love for the Little Mix girls – insisting they have missed the mark when it comes to their new BBC One show.

Amd while Perrie Edwards and her bandmates may be striking Ryan-Mark off their Christmas card list, the same can't be said for BGT bosses.

The outspoken star has heaped praise on the channel for "standing up against a nation of wet wipes" who have helped make Britain's Got Talent the most complained about show of the decade.

As for the impending revamped edition of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!… let's just say you won't find him chowing down on a sheep's testicle on a damp Wednesday night in the Welsh camp anytime soon.

Little Mix girls are disappointing in The Search

Pretty much the X Factor, but think more pink.

The most saccharine and irritating talent show on television right now, there’s no question.

The cringeworthy tapes of friends and family praising the wannabe singers and the forced dances to random Katy Perry tracks during confessionals… Yuck.

You can imagine one of the producers saying "Just dance on this mark on the floor, keep smiling and look like you’re having an amazing time," of course, they’re fully aware they look like idiots.

Before you say I’m too harsh, it seems the majority agree with me.

Last Saturday, the show only managed to draw in 1.9m viewers, compared to Catchphrase which reported 3.7m; that says something when Stephen Mulhern’s comedy and presenting is overtaking you in the ratings.

The fact is, the British public like to judge and demonise people; the show is full of talented and attractive people: that’s the issue.

We don’t care for Adam, who’s a 10/10 and can serenade me to sleep every night—no!

We want Wagner, Jedward and Rylan (in small portions) – that’s what keeps us going. If we want talent, we will watch it on YouTube.

The producers have missed a golden opportunity with this show by focusing on pure talent, whilst we crave a mixture of the good and the absolute trash. Little Mix? Little disappointing.

BGT Ofcom snowflakes need putting in their place

What a year 2020 has been, and one of the biggest TV shocks has to be the family favourite BGT under fire and officially becoming the most complained about show of the decade. Extraordinary times.

This has come after the divisive BLM routine, contentious contestants and Amanda’s low-cut dresses; all of which triggered 28,000 Ofcom complaints.

You would expect BGT without Simon Cowell to be warmly received by the viewers, well frankly it seems to be the opposite.

This goes to show how pathetic the British public is becoming in recent times.

I thought we’re a nation of dry humour, great comedy, stiff upper lip and rarely anything bothers us.

I’m now ashamed of the direction this country is going in with a population of utter losers.

Importantly, who has the time to email or call Ofcom to make a complaint?

I wonder how the Ofcom agents feel listening to tedious and baseless complaints coming from the likes of Dorris in Bognor Regis, horrified by Amanda Holden’s cleavage. The audacity!

Shows like Come Fly With Me have been de-platformed, and the snowflakes of this country won’t stop until the most entertaining programme on the box is the One Show.

We must stop this wet movement from taking over the country. Don’t like the BLM dance? Switch over. Don’t like Alesha Dixon’s BLM necklace? Close your eyes when she’s on-screen.

I admire ITV’s response to the complaints, placing adverts in major British newspapers, standing behind Diversity’s BLM routine and dismissing the woeful complaints in the most blatant move against wet wipes that we’ve seen in a while.

We need to wake up and toughen up; TV has a role of educating as well as entertaining, and we can’t afford to censor things that could offend us. George Orwell’s 1984 is becoming scarily reminiscent in 2020, and I thought Big Brother was axed in 2018.

I’m A Celeb 2020 will be filled with desperate contestants

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of This Rain! The show is set to go ahead this year from their new location in Gwrych Castle, Wales.

Earlier this week it was reported the set was hit by a flood, which crew spent the weekend drying out ahead of filming.

Throughout the week, the castle continued to be hit by torrential rain, and this is likely to get worse when the show airs in November.

Survivalist Bear Grylls pointed out "The bad weather in Wales will be brutal," and I can only imagine how horrific the experience will be for the contestants.

The only compensation in taking part is the sunshine and free trip to Australia, that makes the lamb’s brain and bull penis a bit more palatable. Try that in non-stop rain and freezing temperatures in Wales. No, thank you.

There’s also a local lockdown in Conwy county, where the show is being filmed, regardless the Welsh government has given dispensation for filming to proceed.

It just makes me question how desperate ITV bosses are for this programme to go forward under the circumstances.

Money is the only thing on their mind. Other hit shows like The Apprentice and Love Island have been axed because of safety reasons under the circumstances, so why does this not apply to I’m A Celeb?

I exclusively know people in talks with the show, some of which aren’t interested and would rather wait for the iconic Australian location, so I can’t imagine this year’s cast will be tremendously exciting, they’re all clearly desperate.

All I’ve heard about is AJ Pritchard, yeah okay, he’s hot, but what else?

I have a feeling it will be an underwhelming series.

Unfortunately, I can’t say I’m looking forward to watching, but I’m so much more curious to see how it will play out this year under numbing and cruel conditions.
